Colnago Nuovo Mexico

Hi - how do these frames rate against the other models that colnago made in the 80s?

Thanks

Andrew

They are well regarded, flagship model for the early 80's.

Most members would probably consider them more desirable than a Super, given that they held a higher position in the Colnago hierarchy. Of course, there are some dissenters who not like fluted tubes. Depending on the exact year, they often had more extensive chrome that the Super, which is attractive to many owners. While there is a difference in the ride, I don't think it is big enough to be a concern to most cyclists.
